Halsey strips down ‘Without You’ for Radio 1’s Live Lounge

Halsey took to the infamous BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to break her hit single ‘Without You’ into a mellow offering. 

The hopeless fountain kingdom singer is a dab-hand at an acoustic cover, with previous stripped versions of her tracks pulling in millions and millions of views on YouTube.

‘Without Me’, the artist’s self-proclaimed most honest offering to date, was released last month, peaked at Number 2 in the global charts and has gone down a treat with fans across the world. It is suspected to be a pouring out of the singer’s heart detailing her separation from boyfriend and rapper G-Eazy.

Halsey’s voice is vulnerable and emotional as she croons above an accompanying guitar line. Many have criticised the artist for her live vocals, but none will be making those comments around here. One YouTube user commented “The raspyness in her voice gets me everytime WOW”, whilst another wrote, “This stripped version was breathtaking. So many raw emotions and I felt every single one of them”.

The BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge has seen some of the biggest names walk through its doors, including Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Harry Styles. This week Halsey’s take on Juice Wrld’s ‘Lucid Dreams’ and a stripped version of ‘Without Me’ were offered up to listeners.

The pop star’s release of ‘Without Me’ caught fans off guard having finished her hopeless fountain kingdom era recently. However, fans can expect more coming from the 24-year-old. She took to Twitter this week to let fans know that more exciting things are in the works!
